Dragon Festival at Phalen Park in St. Paul is this week – July 13th and 14th! The Dragon Festival is celebrating 19 years of honoring the Pan-Asian heritage and spirit. There is free admission, free performances, and (mostly) free children’s activities.
Enjoy two days of colorful, traditional dances and music to showcase the performance arts of Asia.
Dragon Festival comes alive for the young crowd! From boat races on the lake, to martial arts demonstrations, singing and dancing at the performance stage, to all sorts of activities sponsored by our vendors and supporters. Some of our sponsors offer activity challenges, with awards and prizes! There are activities for kids of ALL ages!
Be sure to swing by the north side of the park again this year too! We have the bouncy castles back! Please note, the bouncy castles are not free, they do require the purchase of a ticket. Tickets are available by the hour or all-day unlimited.
Martial Artist Demonstrations
The Dragon Festival Planning Committee is committed to providing festival goers with a uniquely Asian and Pacific Islander-inspired event. Martial arts performers provide festival goers with a multitude of experiences, performances and awesomeness. See a showcase of a variety of different types of martial artists from professionals to even people just like you. Our hope is to bring awareness to our attendees of the practice of Martial Arts from all different parts of Asia that are prevalent in our own community.
